Unit Finished - Destoryer Lord

Imotekh the Stormlord wasn't going to be used so I "upgraded" him. I think I like him better this way.
Here's my finished Destroyer Lord. He was a lot of fun to paint. I think I'm getting better at the glowy bits, too.
He was actually a last minute addition to my army, added in because he cost exactly he right amount of points.
I've used him in 2 games so far and he's been fantastic in both, slaughtering his way through a bunch of stuff. Hooray!
My pictures are kind of crappy. I think for Christmas I'll buy myself a nice light box or something!

Necron Deathmark

Here's my first Deathmark. I love these guys. 5 of them with a Harbinger of Despair never fails me, teleporting around the battlefield and shutting down people's brains.
Most of my weapons have purple glowy bits, so I went with blue on these guys with a black carapace to make them stand out a little more, being elite assassins and all.

Unit Finished - Harbinger of Destruction 2

I'm not sure which Cryptek is the current Internet favourite. Maybe the Harbinger of the Storm? Either way, I like a few Destruction Crypteks in my army. They can deal with vehicles, they add some ranged threat beyond the standard Necron 24", and they bring some high strength low AP for chipping away at Terminators, Monsterous Creatures or whatever. They have nice utility. Plus, huge laser-lance gun-cannons! That's always good, right?
Anyway, I have 3 in my list and here's the second.

Destroyer Lord WIP

When I started my Necrons, one of the first figures I picked up was Imotekh the Stormlord. He was a cool figure and I thought I might use him.

Well, time has progressed and I'm pretty sure he won't see the battlefield any time soon. So, rather than have him sitting around on the shelf doing nothing I decided to put him to use and re-purpose him as a Destroyer Lord.

A WIP, I'll be adding a Warscythe and jazzing up his back a little. It looks kind of plain without the cloak.

500pts Necrons vs Dark Eldar

Earlier this week I ran a short intro game of 40k for a friend who's just starting out.
My goal was to showcase a few different unit types and give a general feel for how things interact with other things.
Simple stuff but everything was painted so I took some pictures!
This pretty much sums up how the game went. The Dark Eldar get gunned down by the Necrons with very little robotic casualties in return.

Emperor's Children Colour Test

Words cannot describe how excited I am for the new Chaos codex. Aside from maybe the Orks, Chaos would be the army I've loved for longest. Slaanesh is my God of choice, and I am eager to unleash waves of sonic destruction upon the servants of the Corpse Emperor once more. The Forge World Heresy book isn't helping much.

Anyway, my skills have improved quite a bit since I painted my EC several years ago, and as I love them so much I want to do the army justice. My last scheme was mostly comprised of washes, which looked ok, but I want something I off a bit more with. Seems appropriately Slaaneshi.

Dark Vengeance had me reaching for the purple paint, but I'm holding off for now. I'll probably want to do some weapon swaps or something. I want the Chosen to be as deadly on the battlefield as they look.

So I grabbed this guy and forced him to submit before the angry paintbrushes of destiny.

I'm not sure I like the stark contrasts between the shades of purple at the moment. Something more subtle might work better I think.

Anyway, please give me some C&C!
